Energy for Tomorrow Renewable Energy Program

Energy for Tomorrow makes it easy to make a difference in the environment by increasing electricity production from energy sources such as wind and solar. As a We Energies electric customer, you can participate in this voluntary program that not only increases use of renewable energy but also reduces greenhouse gas emissions produced by fossil fuels.

How it works

  • Choose amount. You can participate at a 25, 50 or 100% level. We produce or purchase renewable energy to match that percent of your electricity use, which replaces equal amounts of electric generation from traditional sources. Participation does not impact electric service reliability.
  • Pay additional charge per kilowatt-hour (kWh). Because renewable energy costs more to produce than energy generated from traditional sources, the price is slightly higher. We use the premium to produce or purchase renewable energy and to enroll new participants.

    660 kWh is the average monthly use for a We Energies residential customer. Here is a comparison of additional charges for 660 kWh at the various participation levels (actual monthly charges vary based on usage):
    • 25% Level ($0.00502/kWh): $3.31
    • 50% Level ($0.01004/kWh): $6.63
    • 100% Level ($0.02007/kWh): $13.25

Program description

Energy for Tomorrow renewable energy program is offered to We Energies electric customers and regulated by the Public Service Commission of Wisconsin (PSCW). All changes to this program must be submitted to and approved by the applicable state laws and regulatory policies of the PSCW.
